Hi,

 

is it possible to rotate or flip single glyphs (letters/characters) in text, without converting it to paths?

It would be a very useful feature in logo design or typographic design.

 

Thank you.

I am looking for the very same option, but can't find it.

Alternatively I would convert the character to a path, manipulate it outside the text line and then... I would like to add it as a mere vector object to the text line, but that does not seem to work either. Does anyone have an idea for this?

I would like to get this result I had done in Adobe Illustrator before:

Thank you very much for you fast reply and creative work-around! I just tried it and I think for now I can work with that.

For the future of Designer an option to rotate individual characters would be a nice-to-have feature – but the other option: to add vector (or pixel) objects to a line or frame of text is an essential function, I believe.

Ah, kinda like CorelDraw can do...and always has. And here also lifted off the baseline.

Same here - and I just found a perfect place for it: go dig it.

I suppose you are on Mac, the Windows version does not offer this possibility.

Even DrawPlus allowed the rotation and movement of one or more letters without vectorization.
